I Can’t Do It All

You can’t do it for them… honest, I’ve tried!

You can not diet for them. You can’t exercise for them. You can not manage their money for them. And…

You can’t get rid of their stuff and arrange for them.

However bad it gets.

Believe me, I have tried. I’ve begged, pleaded, coerced, and nagged.

You see, like many married couples and partnerships, my hubby and are I are complete opposites. What I see as crap, he sees as treasure. What I see as broken, he sees as fixable. What I wish to discard, he wishes to keep.

For thirty-seven years we’ve been doing this dance. A dance where we step on each others toes — a lot!

What I had to learn from this dancing, often the hard way, was that I could not do so for him. I couldn’t force him. Threaten him.

There was not any way to move this man until he was ready. Until he saw the value of doing this.

When I pushed before he was ready, that only made us both crazy. And, his toes just dug in deeper. No way to move a boulder that large.

So, what do we do if we wish to have a neat and tidy house, well arranged, with a place for everything and everything in its place IF our partners do just the opposite?

It is a question that I hear frequently, how do I “create” my husband (wife, lover, children, family member, roommate… ) eliminate their mess and clean up after themselves?

Good question and the answer is multi-faceted, layered, and often complicated.

However, the simple answer is this — > You Can’t!

You can’t make them do anything. It only happens when they’re prepared, when they see the value of doing this, or, something kicks them into gear to take action.

To accomplish the job.

That’s if you wish for sustainable success as well as a more peaceful relationship!

Badger someone into submission, or toss their stuff without permission, and a war of wills is waged.

Nobody wins when that happens. Yep, been there with this, too!

So, what do you do, you ask?

Here are three useful tips…

Tip #1. Recognize your definition isn’t theirs. Believe it or not, there is no one definition of clutter. Each person sees it differently. What you see as clutter, isn’t necessarily how they view it. So, get clear on your definitions of clutter, organized and tidy. This will assist with tip #2.

Tip #2. Set some rules and boundaries. Sit down with your spouse or family and hash these out together. Define what regions of the home are communal — those used by all regularly. What areas are personal? And, what areas are considered totally “off limits” by anyone but you. Determine what is allowed, or not, in every area of the home, but especially the communal ones. These are the ones that cause the most conflict. Set the bounds clearly AND discuss what happens if these boundaries are crossed.

Show by example. Get started and do your own places. Begin with you! When you show by doing, it receives the energy moving and often your spouse and family will follow. You might begin with “Throw Away Thursdays.”

And, remember it is baby steps. However small the step, acknowledge it as a step in the right direction. Those very small steps do build on each other with amazing results.

Acquiring Equity

With no added value, there are no profits. This is true with any business, but what makes property such a wonderful business and a great investment, is the number of ways that you can add value and cash in on big profits. Here are three ways you can add value to your properties.

Upgrades and Repairs: OK, this is the obvious one and is the reason fix and flippers can make money. Some repairs like Bee Removal Melbourne FL add a great deal more value than it costs to do. The more creative you are with the improvements, the more value you can add. For example, I have a client that adds square footage to every house he buys. He really likes the inner city properties since they’re the toughest to add square footage. You either have to finish an unfinished basement, or add a second story. There’s not typically enough land on the lot to add an addition by upping the foot print of their property. This client does lots of basement finishes and “pop tops,” but where he’s made the most money is the basement that is only 5 or 6 feet deep. Something most investors would not think of, so he is able to get the deal many other investors pass on. I have also seen some investors find homes that don’t actually fit into a neighborhood and they make them fit. This could be limited bedrooms or baths or funky floor plans. All of that can be changed. Clearly many cosmetic fixes like kitchens and bathrooms add a good deal of value too. There is a lot more to it than that, but the idea is to buy a property in its true ‘as is’ value, (don’t over pay), and then add value with the repairs and updates.

Owner Finance: I love this one because it is so simple to add value with very little to no work. You’ll have to wait to cash in on your own profits, but it’s a way to boost a sell price significantly. You may also use this strategy to defer tax gains over a few years, instead of taking a major hit all in one year. When you’ve got a property available are a limited number of buyers for the house, although right now that pool of buyers seems pretty large. If you are able to increase the pool of buyers, then the demand for that one house increases, which forces the price to go up. Someone that cannot be eligible for an ordinary loan, limiting the supply of homes to choose from for that purchaser, will probably purchase your property. That also increases the price. You’re adding value by providing them the chance to own a house that they normally wouldn’t be able to own. For this value, you should be compensated with a higher price and a decent interest rate on the profits, as you wait for the buyer to refinance and pay off you in full.

Shared Units: This is one area of real estate I have not dabbled in, but it’s very inviting. The idea here would be to sell your property to multiple buyers. You are seeing this a lot in resort cities. It’s always a vacation or second home. They are pretty enticing aren’t they? About 13 years ago my ex wife and I were in Florida and got sucked into a time share sales pitch. We decided to go since they offered us free tickets to Disney. We sat there for about an hour and a half and then the hard sale came. They were very good at promoting the “thought” of the time talk and had my ex spouse sold. She asked me to move forward with the deal, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I told her that I wasn’t comfortable with an emotional purchase and that we had time to think it through. “Can I please have our Disney tickets?” was my response. As we rode back to the hotel that day, I started considering the math. Each unit can be sold to 52 different people because your purchase just gets you 1 week a year. Add that to the yearly maintenance fees and the amounts are staggering. I know those who have flipped time shares successfully, since you can get them for free or near free on Craigslist, but it is not an investment I was considering. That said, I’ve considered doing a half or quarter share on a home in a ski town in Colorado. In this scenario, you’re sharing a home with 1 to 3 other individuals so there is a ton more flexibility. You can use or rent out your weeks and you can be ensured valuable high demand weeks every year. It’s a way to acquire a second home without the full expense. From the seller’s point of view, it is a way to get more for the house. 1/2 a share of a home is going to cost the buyer more than 1/2 of their fair market value. I have seen business plans from investors who would buy a house and quarter share it out. The idea was that after they improved the property and sold 3/4 of their house to 3 different buyers, they would own the last 1/4 free and clear. Obviously this strategy will work best in places where folks want second homes. The downside is if there are any improvements or significant difficulties. I can see there being disagreements, so this is something you would want, as a buyer, to work out with the rest of the owners in writing before you buy.

First Time Home Buyer

We frequently refer to owning a home, of one’s own, as the American dream! But while a lot of people contemplate doing this, far too few, proceed in a well – prepared, ready manner, in order to have the ability to buy a home, they can, both afford, and meets their priorities. Doesn’t it make sense, to proceed, at the best possible fashion, to take the right steps, to make the procedure simpler, and less stressful.

1. Check credit reports: Several months earlier (suggest approximately 6 weeks), obtain a copy of your credit file, from all the major credit reporting agencies, and examine it, thoroughly, for precision, etc.. Furthermore, examine, how you might increase your credit score, either by paying – down debt, etc.. A lot of people can do this themselves, but, if you do not feel you are able to consult a professional, for advice and assistance.

2. Avoid additional new debt: We are often tempted, to accept new credit offers, which we are offered, at shops, through the mail, online, etc.. While you could save a few dollars, originally, obtaining new debt, or, even, giving your consent, for these entities to review and obtain your credit information, will have the effect, of lowering your credit rating!

3. Accumulate down – payment: The greater the down – payment, the easier it often is, to obtain financing to buy a house! Bear in mind, a larger down – payment, translates to, lower monthly payments, as well as a better, asset to ratio, loan. The greater this ratio, the lower the mortgage interest rate!

4. Accumulate reserves: Ideally, homeowner should put aside, a reserve fund, equal to at least, 6 to 9 months, of recurring monthly expenses. Moreover, another reserve, should be gathered, for repairs and renovations!

5. Examine/ consider your personal comfort zone: What is your personal comfort zone, in terms of how much, recurring monthly expenses, to carry? This number could be less than, equal to, or greater than, the total amount of mortgage you qualify for, so every effort, should be, to find the maximum, bang – for – the – dollar, and live somewhat, within your means, and comfort zone.

Potential home buyers gain, Palm Bay Raccoon Trapping Services when they prepare, as completely as possible, before taking a look at houses. A prepared, educated consumer, has the most stress – free process!

Harm to Habitats

Evolution allows species to adapt to their surroundings, so that the species can fulfill a niche and live to procreate and continue. Those species that didn’t evolve quickly enough and were unable to change their localized living spaces are either no longer with us, or risk joining Melbourne Rat Removal the list of endangered species and then, perhaps eventual extinction. Let’s discuss how humans are modifying not only our own surroundings but the environment we share with other species and how that impacts their adaptations and evolutionary process.

There was an interesting article in Science News online lately titled; “Roads are driving rapid evolutionary change in our surroundings – Study explains why road ecology matters,” published on February 17, 2017 about a study from Dartmouth College which stated: “Roads are causing rapid evolutionary change in wild populations of plants and animals according to a new paper. The study looks at the evolutionary changes which are being brought on by the way streets slice and dice our plane.”

 

But, for this list I want to add street noise, interfering in the hunting and evading process of character, and urban heat island effect. Also, hunting by humans, easier access to animals that hangout near roads for road kill, warmth, or water runoff – and poisoning by individuals who put toxins out to prevent rodents and gophers from digging borrows under the road way or to neighboring flood control levees and infrastructures. So, let us call these:

Road Noise – Harder to listen to predators or prey
Heating – Roads are hotter
Human Hunting Access
Poisoning – Rodent control on roadway ditches, sidewalks, road base

There are many road Kill studies – one I often like to mention is by Sean Anderson of California State University Channel Islands in CA. One of his graduate students has a thesis of interest; “Web-Based Reporting System for Road Kill” that was a remarkably insightful project as to just how many animals are killed each year in rural areas in California. Those animals who prevent roads live to procreate, people who don’t often get smushed, providing protein for scavengers who take advantage of the new food source – sometimes at their own peril.

Those animals that listen for cars, or watch attentively and respond quickly survive and flourish, procreate and continue. Nocturnal Animals that do not freeze in car headlights – well, they live and procreate too, people who don’t perish and become road pizza.

There have been many stories about Mountain Lions murdered on Southern California Freeways – attempting to cross. You’d think a mountain lion could learn and be agile enough to escape the way – not so, as nothing they have ever encountered weighs 6,000 lbs. And chases after them at 60+ miles per hour, so they are not on the watch for cars. Even though some of the mountain lions labeled have traditionally spanned freeways in CA, maybe they’re learning and adapting, teaching their young, maybe in 20-generations adaptations will start to appear as they evolve with this new threat?

A recent statistical study showed that the normal point in the US is less than 1/2 mile from a paved street. Our wildlife has to adapt or die to deal with these changes in their environment. You can just imagine the many ways these and other issues are changing their evolutionary adaptation. Pigeons have adapted to live in the city, in parks, along with other species – completely changing the dynamics of the normal evolutionary process, simply because everything we do, affects something else. BTW – I am not an environmentalist or an advocate for wildlife, but nobody can deny what I have said here today isn’t real.

Plants Eat Rats??

Tropical pitcher plants are the only carnivorous plants that can grow to large sizes large enough to swallow large insects to large rodents. There are over 150 different species of tropical pitcher plants and every one displays mother nature’s dark side of revenge against small mammals & insects. The largest tropical pitcher plant current is “Nepenthes Rajah”. Nepenthes means a plant of a genus that comprises the Old World pitcher plants.

Although these plants are beautiful and create some of the most amazing looking flowers that are entirely harmless, the fact that the flower was made because of all the nutrients it captured from the prey it devoured is frightening. To grow among these king carnivore plants in your own backyard means to set up a death trap for any small critters nearby. In Lakeland Florida, the Nepenthes Miranda species is well known for capturing one particular prey far too frequently than any fleas and insect. Although this prey can potentially escape most of the time, it has been seen on YouTube, photography and books that this prey can in fact drown and become plant dinner when it falls into a big trap which happens far too often in Lakeland Florida.

Anole lizards seem to play a major part in any Nepenthes diet in Lakeland Florida. These lizards are everywhere and have been the main course to a meal plan oblivious. It is truly sad to see that these anole lizards became a part of a plants source of protein; they do not appear to get a rest at all. Not only do cats feast upon them, birds, large insects, Fish and other reptiles like Frogs and toads will gobble these lizards up and today we’re adding plants because their enemies now?! With over a billion of these lizards in the state of Florida, there are plenty to go around.

So how do they get caught? It’s extremely straightforward and somewhat different than Melbourne Animal Removal how the insects get captured. Let’s first explain the difference. Insects fall prey to the Nepenthes pitcher plants for two major reasons; due to the plant’s colour & due to the plant’s nectar. Nepenthes pitcher plants create colorful leaves and traps that capture the attention of hungry bugs & insects passing by. The leaves resemble delicious fruits and the nectar that the plant releases around the traps lip seals the deal and tips that the insects into thinking it’s a free meal with no cost. Almost like a person drinking beer or vodka, drink too much and it’s over. The lip of the traps are also slippery, designed so prey could fall inward into the trap when they have become groggy and can no longer hold themselves onto the slippery surface. Once at the bottom, they drown in the pool of digestive juices and then the plant will start the breakdown the insects’ soft parts and suck it up its glands.

The capture process is comparable to anole lizards; The lizards are attracted to the smell of the delicious nectar and start licking it off the lip but that doesn’t seal the deal as quickly as it does with insects. In the state of Florida, it can be very hot during the summer months & it isn’t always simple for lizards to find drinking water. They become tempted to push their luck by scaling inside the pitchers and make their way to the digestive juices to drink; after drinking from a pool of drowned and digested insects is better than not drinking in any way. Some lizards hide interior pitcher plants from other predators or find insects still alive inside a pitcher trap and try to catch and eat it. The problem about this is that the lizard will more and likely fall in the liquid and if he’s lucky, he can swim and climb his way out but when he can’t get out and becomes exhausted from the unsuccessful attempts of escape, then he’ll drown and become dinner. This happens far too frequently for pitcher plant growers in Florida. Some pitchers can catch more lizards than they could digest, leading to the trap rotting away.

Insect meals can take about 3 weeks to digest completely while anole lizards can take up to 2-3 months prior to leaving nothing but lizard bones at the bottom of a pitcher plant snare. A pitcher plant that eats nothing but reptiles can grow into a very large plant and if the plant is receiving the humidity, heat & lighting it needs, it can grow some very big traps (depending on the species).

Basic Knot Tying

Glad to have you and hope we can give tips that’ll be helpful for you and raise your fishing enjoyment. Since there’ll be a wide variety of expertise in the people who come here, we’re going to begin with a basic that seasoned fishermen probably know. But all you experienced fishermen ought to be patient – because we’ll be providing more advanced tips also. Our intention is to reach everybody with our hints and to do that, we are in need of a variety.

However, even the seasoned Daytona Rat Removal fisherman could check the more basic strategies and refresh himself. Even if you only get the confirmation that you’re doing the basics correctly.

We’re going to begin with knot tying. You will need to tie your fish-hook or lure or swivel to your line so that it stays. There’s nothing more dreadful than losing a big fish and discovering that your knot came undone! Believe me; you don’t want it to happen. So, here’s a simple knot which has many applications. It’s simple to learn and when you tie this knot many times, you can also do it in the dark.

The knot is known as the “Cinch Knot”. This is how to tie it. Then set the end of the line through the loop at the line you made when you began to wrap. That loop will be next to the eye of the hook. Before you pull it tight, then stick the end of the line back beneath the previous turn you left when you wrapped the line 5 times around. Make sure it’s snug and examine it to be sure it holds. After that, you can trim off the extra line right near the knot. When you first begin making this knot, I suggest getting your line somewhat long as you tie it. The knot is simpler to tie this way and you’ll always cut off the surplus anyhow. Now, with your knot tied properly and tested by you pulling online to be sure it’ll remain tied, you’re all set! You might not grab ’em, but at least you’ll be confident your knot will hold!

Perhaps a picture example of how to tie the knot will allow the explanation be much easier to follow when you are able to see it. There are quite informative images of knots – in the course of being tied – in Google Photos. Just click on the hunt for knot tying photos and you’ll see fantastic examples being tied. This is a fantastic resource for you to keep handy as you learn how to tie a right knot!

All anglers wants knives. They’re required to perform a simple cut of the line close to the knot so you don’t have some large “tails”. Knives Inclusive is a site built for people who want an excellent knife without paying a high cost.

4 Simple Fishing Tips for Beginners

The first tip in simple fishing is making sure the rig is just perfect. There are two reasons making sure that the rig is just perfect. There are many unique ways of tying a knot and that all depends on what you’re fishing for. Here are a few knots and what they’re used for. The first one is a Turle Knot which is a amazing fixed knot for fly fishing and a Uni Knot is a loop left open which makes streamers and nymphs appear realistic.

Second tip is making sure that your lure is swimming correctly. You need Vero Rat Removal to be sure that your bait is naturally moving through the water and mimicking fish movements and you do this with your rod tip and reel rate. When you pull on your rod tip and reel down to gather slack but making sure to keep in contact with your lure. Some people think they will catch something if they just cast and reel as quickly as they can but if you do your lure won’t look like a natural fish from the water. Just make certain that you swim your lure as the fishing place dictates and you will have a better chance of grabbing that monster fish or just catching something period.

Third suggestion is changing depths. Some people that fish the top of the water thinks it’s fun but when there are no fish at the surface it will not be as fun as you won’t be catching anything. If you are going to be fishing the top of the water, you want to be sure that you are using a jig, spoon or a metal-lipped jerk bait to better your odds of catching something. There are going to be times where you’ll need to add or subtract weight when bait fishing or visit a sink tip or sinking line when you are fly fishing. Just remember if you are having any high water action you may need to go deeper to find where the fish are.

Last tip is changing location. If you’ve been sitting in exactly the same spot for a while and have shifted different lures and baits and there’s nothing baiting, you want to move around to where the fish are in. But before deciding to leave the location you’re at make certain you have covered all the water around you. Make sure to throw a couple of cast to your left, to your right, facing the boat and at the back of the boat. You never know that the fish could be everywhere and it’s simple to move the ship to where the fish are.

With these few tips you will be able to catch that monster fish or a heap of pan fish that summer and possible into the winter, that is if you think you have the summer fishing down to give ice fishing a try. Good luck fishing this summer.

Tenant and Landlord Responsibilities for a Rental Property

Property Dealers in Dwarka involved in leasing business offer society flats, apartments and DDA apartments for rent at Dwarka. The men and women who rent these residential properties are known as tenants. When somebody lease a property, the fundamental rights and duties of the landlord and the landlord have been spelled out in the rental agreement. To avoid confusion and legal disputes, both the landlord and the renter has to know about those responsibilities and rights.

Kinds of Tenancy Agreement

The first option, Fort Lauderdale FL Rat Removal allows the tenant to find the possession of land for an undefined time period. This becomes a huge problem once the tenant fails to vacate and to find a legal solution to this problem might take the court a lengthy period of 10 or 20 years.

Therefore, with older properties you may expect smaller lease, whereas new properties can provide lucrative margins to the landlord. The rent may also be increased marginally by adding the cost of renovating a property.
